Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Oh, I thought I had blogged that, but it was waiting in my notes :
To call copyrighted works “intellectual property” corrupts thought, by subjecting those who want to replace the invention with a more effective one to nonsensical claims of “you’re stealing my property”.
Copyright is not a natural right, but merely an outdated invention from the era of the printing press. I rather agree. It may seem paradoxical since I am, on my level, a creator of works, who more or less needs copyright to exist. But… but I’d be better at arguing if I were in a better mood, which is why I had kept this in my notepad. Let’s say, to simplify, that artistic creation existed long before the invention of copyright, and the main difference between a world with or without copyright is that a handful of artists and creators can get rich beyond reason; for all the others, who would be paid anyway, by salary instead of fee, the result would be pretty much the same.
